Default sixDOF rigid body boundary condition

achyutan is on a distinguished road

I am using sixDOF rigid body b.c for my fsi solver. I am trying to model elastic solid using spring-dashpot system.
I want to use lift, drag force in the equation of motion defined under sixDOF b.c rather than the total/net force acting on the solid which is used in sixDOF's original code. I found out that sixDOF b.c code is defined under 'Forces' directory inside the source code. so, it should be possible to access the total force on the solid.

can somebody help?
